The Quiet Man
The eight-year-old release from The Quiet Man is sweet and spicy with notes of honey, vanilla, and wood spice. A superb introduction to Irish single malt whiskey.
This is an 8 year old Irish single malt whiskey from The Quiet Man range, finished in first-fill bourbon barrels.
The name doesn’t come from the John Wayne film, but from the father of the brand owner, a bartender who heard many stories when behind the bar but told not tales.
It has a distinctively tropical nose, full of flowers, fruit, toasted coconut, and oak. In the mouth, there’s a lot of cereal grain and malt, along with oak spice, vanilla, papaya, banana, and a bit of sawdust. Orange bitters join in during a medium finish. Overall, a light and pleasant whiskey.
